Principles of Electrocoagulation and Application in Wastewater Treatment: 10.4018/978-1-7998-0369-0.ch017: Electrocoagulation has emerged a reliable technology for the treatment of various wastewaters. Therefore, the goal is to evaluate the efficiency of organic polymers as coagulant agents for the treatment of water and wastewater and also to provide an alternative option to metal salts for the chemical purification process. The results showed that the combination process was very effective for Tai Lake water treatment in terms of organic removal and membrane fouling control. As some of the limitations associated with inorganic based coagulants are been mentioned, this study focuses on the option for the natural and composite inorganic-organic polymer to maximize the treatability performance in the wastewater settings. The metal ions hinders the hydrolysis activity when a metal-based coagulant is added to a solution [24, 38, 40]. Suspended particles vary in source, charge, particle size, shape, and density. The use of chitosan in water purification applications has been referenced to decolorizing dye house effluents, the treatment of food-processing wastes, metal ion removal and sludge conditioning. Table 5 outlines the CD of various cationic polymers in mol% and meq/g of polymer. The flocculation facilitates the agglomeration of the coagulated particles to form larger flocs, thereby hastening the gravitational settling or flotation process for the removal of contaminants [24]. This process can be achieved by the application of heat, such as cooked egg whites, or through the addition of thickening agents, such as … Thus, the issue of sludge sedimentation which must be floated is relatively low to flotation systems utilizing organic polymers rather than inorganic coagulants. We share our knowledge and peer-reveiwed research papers with libraries, scientific and engineering societies, and also work with corporate R&D departments and government entities. (Blood vessel constriction and platelet aggregation is the first stage.) fluoride removal using the coagulation process, with 15 minutes run time and pH =6, was 86.63%. Application of coagulation-ultrafiltration-nanofiltration in a pilot study for Tai Lake water treatment Water Environ Res. However, there are several types of coagulants which show the different potential application in treating drinking water or wastewater [11, 17, 27]. Organic polymers can easily be modified and optimized during the manufacturing process for wider application. The solvent is later evaporated to obtain microspheres. Another example of a plant-based coagulant using unexploded waste is cassava peel. The first stage in most chemical water treatment processes is coagulation, whose performance is dependent on coagulant concentration and the water chemistry [12, 14]. This is usually instigated by using either active anionic species like sodium, nitrile, hydroxide or cationic species such as hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, and phosphoric acid. Inline coagulation can aggregate hydrophilic substances to reduce membrane fouling. Look it up now! Keywords: Coagulation process; Electrochemical process; Fluoride; Water treatment.

Available from: Production, Characterization and Innovative Applications, Easy to handle and apply; most commonly used; produces less sludge than lime; most effective between pH 6.5 and 7.5, Adds dissolved solids (salts) to water; effective over a limited pH range, Effective in hard waters; small dosage usually needed, Often used with alum; high cost; ineffective in soft waters, In some applications, Floc, formed is denser and faster settling than alum, Not commonly used; little full-scale data compared to other aluminum derivatives, Adds dissolved solids (salts) to water; usually, need to add alkalinity, Adds dissolved solids (salts) to water; consumes twice as much alkalinity as alum, Adds dissolved solids (salts) to water; usually need to add alkalinity, Commonly used; very effective; may not add salts to effluent, pH-dependent; produces large quantities of sludge; overdose can result in poor effluent quality, Used in lieu of alum where raw water has low pH & alkalinity. Subsequently, the long-term application of metal-based coagulants (aluminum and iron) [11] has raised concerns associated with sludge generation and heavy metal residuals which are potentially toxic to the ecosystem [10, 11, 12]. Coagulation-Flocculation Technology in Water and Wastewater Treatment (pages 432-457) Yeek-Chia Ho, Siong-Chin Chua, Fai-Kait Chong. Correct application of coagulation and flocculation depends upon these factors. Consequently, metal-based coagulants are most widely used due to their low cost and availability; however, there are some drawbacks [17, 18]. Fig. However, most of the industrial wastewaters from the oil refinery, food, and the agricultural processing industries contain organics, suspended and emulsified oil and grease that prefer to float than settle [10, 15, 16]. However, they are very attractive towards particle surfaces, which is irreversible when attached. And by having access to our ebooks online or by storing it on your computer, you have convenient answers with Coagulation And Flocculation Theory And Applications Surfactant Science . These include (1) they have a very high charge density to neutralize the negative charges present on the surface of the colloidal material, and (2) they have a relatively low molecular weight (MW) which allows good diffusion of the cationic charges around the particles. By making research easy to access, and puts the academic needs of the researchers before the business interests of publishers. Therefore, to obtain good performance, studies have shown that coagulation chemistry has a strong influence on flotation performance [34], such that the chemical reaction between the coagulants and the organic matter results in forming larger oil flocs, whereas, the flotation process facilitates separation [35, 36]. To cause a change in the separation phase depends on four mechanisms such as (1) air bubble generation, (2) contact between air bubble and the particulates, (3) attachment of gas bubbles to particulates, and (4) rising up of the combined air bubble- particulate [31, 32]. Copolymers of acrylamide and acrylic acid to form anionic polyacrylamides [24]. Practical application of point-of-care coagulation testing to guide treatment decisions in trauma. Application of the Precipitation-Charge Neutralization Model of Coagulation Steven K. Dentel Department of Civil Engineering, University of Delaware, Newark, Delaware 197 16 It’s based on principles of collaboration, unobstructed discovery, and, most importantly, scientific progression. In respect to the charge polymers, those with a positive charge are termed as cationic polymers, whereas those with negative charges are called anionic polymers. The co-application of chemical coagulation and an electrochemical process to remove fluoride from polluted water is significantly more efficient than the application of each of them alone. This prevents dust and enhances rapid dissolution. Polymer molecular weight (MW) and charge density (CD) affects the interparticle bridging and electrostatic force mechanism which contributes to the coagulation efficiency [37, 38], such that an increase in molecular weight improves agglomeration and floc formation. Application of coagulation-ultrafiltration-nanofiltration in a pilot study for Tai Lake water treatment. To alleviate fouling, raw water pretreatment using techniques such as coagulation, biofiltration, adsorption, and oxidation has been widely proposed. However, polymers are generally more costly than inorganic coagulants. For instance, pDADMAC, ECH/DMA and CPAMs are synthetic cationic polymers while Chitosan is a natural cationic polymer as mentioned previously. In response to this, Donnan membrane technology which requires a lower operating pressure than others has been one of the fields tested technique in the wastewater treatment settings. Furthermore, consistent slow mixing accelerates the rate floc aggregation and entrapment of the particles in suspension to enhance separation. Correct application of coagulation and flocculation depends upon these factors. Therefore, there is great interest in improving inorganic coagulants by employing polymeric organic and natural coagulants for the treatment of wastewater. Has little impact on pH, Used in lieu of alum where raw water has low pH & alkalinity. rapid mixing and slow mixing as shown in Figure 5. A coagulation-flocculation process is chemical treatment for water and industrial wastewater. This paper provides a critical review on recent studies of coagulation–flocculation treatment processes of … Superior quality of permeate is … Organic polymers by nature are very viscous solutions, which sometimes becomes problematic to be distributed homogeneously in a medium [15, 17]. This allows the coagulated flocs to float on the surface as sludge, whereas clear water moves to the bottom of the floatation tank to the sewer as treated water. We used different types of coagulants in coagulation water treatment process. Therefore, the coagulation-UF-NF is very useful for Tai Lake water treatment. Moving flocs produce shear stress for … Coagulants are the chemicals that are used to removes tiny particles in water. Electrocoagulation can be integrated into new or existing treatment processes. For instance, Figure 7 shows the chemical structure of poly diallyl dimethyl ammonium chloride (pDADMAC), epichlorohydrin/dimethylamine polymers (ECH/DMA) and cationic polyacrylamides (CPAMs) are examples of cationic synthetic polymers while chitosan is an example of the cationic natural polymer [15, 17, 24]. Coagulation is an indispensable mechanism that promotes the aggregation of the suspended solids, which are mostly responsible for turbidity, color, and taste and odor removal [24, 25, 26]. Application progress of enhanced coagulation in water treatment 1. Ideally, the suitable operation conditions required depends on the characteristics of the wastewater and the coagulants, as well as the physical properties as shown in Table 1. Organic polymers and inorganic coagulants over the years have been used in chemical treatment and purification of water and wastewater [41]. Hydrophobic organic coagulants adapted from inorganic coagulants have gained attention in application due to their unique characteristics. XD. This is directed to an increase in viscosity of a polyelectrolyte solution as ionic strength decreases. Figure 9 shows the cationic polymer structure, denoting polymerization of acrylamide followed by partial hydrolysis. Enhancing the coagulation process is currently a popular research topic.
